Hammond Organ Tone Generator Calibration Curve Graph Creator



Hammond Tonewheel Generator Calibration Curve Graph





It is known fact that the tone generator calibration will have a crucial impact on the overall sound and timbre of any tonewheel organ. Each tone generator was calibrated by hand at the factory and no one has the exact same output levels. That's one of the main reasons why each Hammond has its own unique personality, coloration and sound.

While tone generator is crucial to the overall sound of the organ, it can be tricky and risky to attempt any work on the tone generator assembly. Under certain circumstances a new calibration can improve the sound of an instrument and match an individual musical liking and preference much better. However, it is strongly recommended to anyone without the proper knowledge of the tools and technique to start any calibration procedure!

This graph creator tool has been provided for our valued customers but this utility can be used by the general public as well. The method on how to use this graph properly is explained with precision in the: "Hammond B-3 Organ and Leslie 122 Easy Performance and Restoration Tips For NON Technicians" eBook or printed book available in our online store under the sub-menu "Products".

Our vast experience in Hammond organ restoration has taught us that the tone generator might require some tuning in order to get a better performing and sounding organ and Leslie duo. We like to call it the final "Blue Print" of a newly restored equipment and we give our customers the same technique, tools and knowledge we use to achieve a better sounding system.

This page is a very useful tool to help build a graph for your Hammond tonewheel generator frequency output level. The graph can be generated in RMS millivolts or Peak to Peak millivolts. You also have the option to convert your data and build a new graph in RMS millivolts or Peak to Peak millivolts, once you have finished filling all the required fields below. Once completed, you can either print the graph or download it to your computer.

Please note: While the empty fields down below might appear intimidating for any new visitor to this page, it is all simplified and explained step-by-step in the ebook. Once you have the proper information you will realize that it looks a lot more complicated than it is in reality!
